                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon TRANSEL, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at BLACK AND BLUES left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by MEDAL OF HONOR Y2.  Good show!  
Practice pays for PRIVATE 4, who pummelled ROMIAD FLINDERO, to pocket 15 points.  Win 
some, lose some.  Speaking of which, SON OF JOHN was winsome, after beating ALBERT 
KING and seeing him lose 7 points.  Now I can't insult TOM TIGER, as he has 
gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on 
too thick) Word has it one team in TRANSEL is using psychics to predict wins.  They 
lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in MEDAL OF 
HONOR Y2 are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman 
of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of LIKE IT!, so did that sorry team shy from 
MEDAL OF HONOR Y2 Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and FLUFFY BOY is it right 
now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't PSYCHO SQUAD proud!  Them's the breaks, FLUFFY 
BOY.  Expecting fair challenges from MEDAL OF HONOR Y2 is evidently too much to ask.  
Warriors of TRANSEL!  Do you wish your reputations tainted by the base challenge of 
DESMOND DOSS?  Take heed TRANSEL, of the unprincipled action of MONEY.  By 
challenging R.L., 17 points below it, MONEY besmirches the noble art of dueling.  
MONEY subdued R.L..  The whole thing leaves a bitter memory.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  How true is LIKE IT!'s mettle?  Just one week remains for the avenging of 
TAB's death.  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid TRANSEL farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir
